Remember the book How to Eat Fried Worms? I remember reading this book in grade school and it made a big impression on me. The thought of eating a worm was really icky, even if it was fried and covered in ketchup. This summer my kids and I are going to read that book (YOUR kids would love the book too!!) and since this is our first official week of summer we are kicking it off with this wormy treat.

Wow, it’s the end of the school year already! I always like to get the kids involved in making a small gift for their teacher at the end of the year. This paper-mache cupcake was a fun way for them to make a craft for their teacher that also doubled as a gift box. Continue reading How To | Cupcake Gift Box

Happy Mother’s Day to every Mom and Grandma out there. When I came down the stairs this morning my kids all jumped out and yelled, “Happy Mother’s Day”. I wish I would have had my video camera because someday I would love to look back and watch how excited they were to surprise me with their handmade cards, gifts and notes. They also left this little note written with Scrabble Tiles on the table for me. Charlie asked me if there would be candles today, like on cake. Last night while I gave the younger three baths my oldest daughter who is 8 finished cleaning the kitchen, straightened everyone’s covers for bed time and filled all their sippy cups with water, “because it is the night before Mother’s Day”.
Too sweet for words…
Looking for a last minute Mother’s Day project? I just made this today and I admit it is for me. Don’t you just want to capture their little (or not so little) hand print size forever? And check out the cute heart in the palm of their hands. I came up with this project based upon the quote, “Mother’s hold their children’s hands for awhile, but their hearts forever.” Continue reading How To | Mother’s Day Hand Print Craft
Mother’s Day is just around the corner and I am sure you are searching for a perfect handmade gift for mom. Am I right? What about a small gift for Grandma? These tiny little windowsill planters made using recycled lids or a domed vending machine container are just the perfect project for Mother’s Day. You may already have the plants you need in your yard. Continue reading How To | Mother’s Day Recycled Windowsill Mini-Planter
